Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS)
PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions and Support, was implemented at Turner Elementary School two years ago, and its impact has been very positive. The PBIS program has many benefits for students, teachers, and staff.
One benefit to teachers is that PBIS allows every teacher to have a voice in the development of the behavior intervention and support process. Teachers and staff created a consistent referral form to use revolving around our three school rules: Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Responsible. Teachers use the same language when redirecting students' behavior, and positive or negative consequences are given depending upon the students' behavior choices.
The positive behavior support of the “StarBucks Tickets” program is a major benefit to students. Tickets are given to students for following the rules and making good behavior choices. Students may use the tickets to purchase rewards at the weekly "StarBucks store". Students are also given a monthly reward for behavior and academic successes in the classroom. This monthly reward may include a dance, free recess, free dress, or another desirable activity.
Students that need additional intensive support with their behavior choices are placed on a H.U.G card (Hello, Update, Goodbye). This check in/check out component of PBIS gives students additional contact with supportive staff members, and helps many of our students redirect their behaviors and begin to monitor themselves.
Turner School has seen a tremendous positive effect on our students and their behavior through PBIS, and looks forward to continuing the growth and development of PBIS on our campus and in our community.
